processing times for long exposures k-3

Hi,

While I am generally pleased with my k20d one thing that gets in the way are the long processing times associated with long exposures, ie they double the time needed for each shot. Does the k-3 have the same restructions?

Turn off the Slow Shutter Speed Noise Reduction (Camera Settings Menu 2)
The delay is the dark frame exposure used to subtract out the noise.

It basically takes a blank image for the same exposure as your original image and subtracts out the difference for each pixel.

Wouldn't the speed of the SD card also affect the length of time to record the image?   I am amazed at the greater speed touted by the newest cards over many that I have from years ago.

Yes, the card speed matters greatly once you fill the camera's buffer. And NONE of the cards record at the advertised speed, so slow ones can be noticably slow. Buy a Sandisk Extreme Pro, from a reputable source (COUNTERFEITS exist) for best performance.
